About Laser Therapy

The original motivation for the creation of this website was to assist in the public’s understanding of Laser Therapy; everything on this website was essentially providing a deeper understanding for the information on this page.

The Admin felt the need for the creation of AllAboutLasers because there are many confusing references, explanations and claims regarding Laser Therapy, including some statements that are flat out wrong.

When used correctly, Laser Therapy can be an incredible way to heal the body from an extremely wide variety of conditions. As of 2017, Laser Therapy has officially been used for 50 years in the medical and therapeutic fields (SEE HISTORY) and during that time, NO significant adverse effects have been reported from proper use (SEE CLASSIFICATIONS for risks and proper usage, SEE STUDIES for citing of claim for no significant adverse effects being reported).

The points that most practitioners and scientists can agree on are the following:

  1. Laser Therapy has no adverse effects, meaning when used properly, no increase in harm will come from treatment.
  2. The underlying biochemical mechanisms which support the efficacy of Laser Therapy are only roughly known. The exact reasons why Laser Therapy has helped countless people over the years from such an expansive variety of conditions is not definitively known.
  3. Multiple and frequent applications of Laser Therapy treatment are generally required to see optimal results.
    • There are a surprising number of people who claim to have felt improvement in the first or first few treatments of Laser Therapy, though this is the minority response and is NOT to be expected.
    • Those who work out frequently have an increased probability of seeing expedited results (SEE STUDIES and TESTIMONIALS), though those of all ages have claimed incredible improvement of their conditions and quality of life. The oldest person to see success with Laser Therapy met personally by the Admin was a 98 year old woman (listed in TESTIMONIALS).
  4. The absolute best parameters for each condition have yet to be determined.
    • The reason why this is can be surmised by two factors:
      • 1) A large number of parameters such as wavelength, power density, pulse structure, duration of application must be chosen for each treatment. With so many parameters as well as conditions, this creates for an almost infinite number of possible studies to be completed for accurate understanding of what the “best” delivery is for each respective condition.
      • 2) Another factor could be because so many have seen positive results for the same condition from a variety of parameters of Laser Therapy. This leads to the assumption that all forms of Laser Therapy have the potential to be beneficial to SOME degree.
    • DO NOTE:
      • There are many claims that specific lasers, select frequencies, certain class of laser etc. are “the best” and that anything NOT within their select parameters is “proven to not be effective!” etc. As stated above, there are a near infinite number of different combinations of parameters for different conditions, so understand that any of these claims are simply opinions stated as fact.
        • See COMMONLY USED LASERS for a list of the most popularly used Laser Therapy lasers and any relevant research to specific models
        • See CLINCS vs HOME DEVICES to see a PRO/CON list for both
        • See STUDIES for studies on select conditions and general application
        • See HERE for a more complete list of conditions with respective studies and treatment protocols.


Why has Laser Therapy been somewhat Controversial?

Reasons 2 and 4 above are why Laser Therapy has been controversial over the years:

  • “Although Laser Therapy is now used to treat a wide variety of ailments, it remains controversial as a therapy for two principle reasons:
    • First, its underlying biochemical mechanisms remain poorly understood, so its use is largely empirical.
    • Second, a large number of parameters such as the wavelength, fluence, power density, pulse structure, and timing of the applied light must be chosen for each treatment.” (1)


Clarification of Laser Therapy Labels

Now, before we get into HOW Laser Therapy works, let’s review the different labels used to reference lasers used for both surgical and therapeutic uses: (For more complete list and citations, see lower portion of APPLICATION Page)

  • When doing online searches on “What is Laser Therapy” there are a lot of different terms that come up, so let’s clarify the basics:
    • Laser Therapy vs Laser Surgery: In short, Laser Therapy heals, Laser Surgery cuts. If any site says Laser Therapy yet refers to ANY type of surgery (even “minimally invasive”) this is NOT fully accurate. Laser Therapy refers to NON-invasive therapies. When searching for treatment options, make sure you are aware of whether the treatment is invasive (surgery) or not (therapy).
      • For technical purposes, the definition of “therapy” is defined by, “treatment intended to relieve or heal a disorder”
        • From a technical standpoint, anything used in attempt to alleviate conditions which utilizes any type of laser would TECHNICALLY indeed be “laser therapy” regardless of the application.
        • However, the technical definition of “laser therapy” is so vast that using the term “laser therapy” when referring to anything at all invasive is very misleading, is not constructive for practical clarification, and is not the most common use of the term.
      • (For more details on the differences, see LASERS IN MEDICINE page)
    • HOT Laser vs COLD Laser: HOT Laser is referencing in a very general sense a SURGICAL Laser, while COLD Laser is referencing in a very general sense a THERAPEUTIC Laser. Neither is referencing any specific type or even classification of Laser-they are extremely broad.
      • Keep in mind that this does not necessary have a direct correlation to the temperature of the laser; hot/surgical lasers will always indeed be hot, as they are cutting/burning/destroying tissue, however, Cold Lasers can have either no temperature or they can be warm, but they are never actually “cold”.
    • Low-Level Laser Therapy (Laser Therapy) is referring to any Therapeutic Lasers in either Class I, Class II or Class III (including subcategories)(SEE CLASSIFICATIONS). 
      • Other synonyms for Laser Therapy are Low-Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT), Low Power Laser Therapy (LPLT) and Low Level Light Therapy (Laser Therapy).
      • Anything classified as Laser Therapy is technically “Cold Laser” but this simply means therapeutic, there is no reference to the actual temperature of the laser. Class III lasers can have a nominal heat element depending on the laser. Class II (and I) will never have a heat element, but will simply have NO temperature, it will never be “cold” to the senses.
    • High-Powered Laser Therapy (HPLT) is referring to any Therapeutic Lasers classified as Class IV Lasers (See CLASSIFICATIONS).
      • There is often confusion surrounding High Powered Laser Therapy being referred to as “Cold Laser” as being Class IV, there is always a significant heat element. As stated above, “Cold” simply means “Therapeutic” and has no actual reference to the temperature of the laser.
    • Ultraviolet Radiation (UV) is not as commonly used for therapeutic purposes, but technically is still “Laser Therapy” in the Near-Ultraviolet (NUV, 300-400nm), Middle Ultraviolet (MUV, 200-300nm) and to 150nm into the Far Ultraviolet range (FUV, 200-122nm). Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV, 121-10nm) is NOT considered Laser Therapy. (SEE WHAT IS LASER page)


How Long has Laser Therapy Been Used?

  • Healing properties of different wavelengths of light were first discovered in ancient times, but modern understanding of healing properties of laser were discovered 50 years ago (See HISTORY), when scientists realized that non-invasive lasers “had the potential to improve wound healing and reduce pain, inflammation and swelling” (1).


How It Works

***To reduce speculation on this page, the Admin has only used published Academic Journals as sources for this section***

  • The shortest way to explain how Laser Therapy works is that it gives the body the energy needed to heal itself. In other words, essentially, Laser Therapy is simply acting as a catalyst to the natural healing system.
  • This is possible through a processes called photobiomodulation, which is very similar to that of photosynthesis in plants, where photons are absorbed by electronic absorption bands belonging to molecular photoreceptors or chromophores. Just like with plants, this absorption induces photobiological processes in cells where photonic stimuli excite the body’s cells, infusing them with energy (2).
  • Through the process of photobiomodulation, Laser Therapy regenerates and rejuvenates different types of cells in the body (theoretically all types of cells, numerous specifics are discussed below).
      • 1) Photons from Laser Therapy are absorbed by the mitochondria. (1) It is hypothesized that there is a photo receptor (chromophore) within the mitochondria (1). Mitochondria are organelles inside the cell referred to as the “powerhouse” of the cell and are involved in releasing energy from food in a processes known as cellular respiration.
      • 2) Laser Therapy causes an “increase in mitochondrial products, such as ATP, NADH, protein, and RNA, as well as a reciprocal augmentation in oxygen consumption” (1)
      • 3) This process also modulates low levels of ROS (“Reactive Oxygen Species”-reactive molecules and free radicals which have the potential to cause a wide variety of very toxic issues in the body).
      • 4) This then activates transcription factors, such as NF-κB, to induce many gene transcript products
    • Laser Therapy strongly affects mast cells, cells with a significant role in the body’s defense against pathogens. Laser Therapy triggers the release of the pro-inflammatory cytokine TNF-a from the cells, allowing leukocytes to greater infiltrate tissue. (1)
    • “Laser Therapy also enhances the proliferation, maturation, and motility of fibroblasts, and increases the production of basic fibroblast growth factor” (1).
    • Lymphocytes become activated and proliferate more rapidly, and epithelial cells become more motile” (1).
    • Laser Therapy stimulates the modulation of apoptosis (increased programmed cell death, or death of not optimally functioning cells) (2).
    • Increases serotonin and endorphins (7)
    • Improves blood circulation to the skin in cases like neuralgia and diabetes mellitus (7)
    • Decreases permeability of the membrane of the nerve cells for Na/K causing hyperpolarization (7)
    • Increases lymphatic flow and decreases edema (7)
    • Effect on the electron transport chain:
      • The influence of Laser Therapy on the electron transport chain extends far beyond simply increasing the levels of ATP produced by a cell. Oxygen acts as the final electron acceptor in the electron transport chain and is, in the process, converted to water. Part of the oxygen that is metabolized produces reactive oxygen species (ROS) as a natural by-product. ROS are chemically active molecules that play an important role in cell signaling, regulation of cell cycle progression, enzyme activation, and nucleic acid and protein synthesis. Because Laser Therapy promotes the metabolism of oxygen, it also acts to increase ROS production. In turn, ROS activates transcription factors, which leads to the upregulation of various stimulatory and protective genes. These genes are most likely related to cellular proliferation,76 migration,32 and the production of cytokines and growth factors, which have all been shown to be stimulated by low-level light.” (1)
    • In other words, Laser Therapy stimulates the acceleration of the natural healing processes of the body.
  • There are three main purposes for the use of Laser Therapy: (1)
    • 1) To promote wound healing, tissue repair (superficial and deep), prevention of tissue death and nerve healing
    • 2) To relieve inflammation and edema because of injuries or chronic diseases/disorders
    • 3) As an analgesic and a treatment for other neurological disorders
                • (1)
    • Wound healing was one of the first documented clinical applications for Laser Therapy and expedites all three phases of wound healing: (1)
      • 1) The inflammatory phase (immune cells are brought to the wound)
      • 2) the proliferative phase (increased production of fibroblasts and macrophages)
      • 3) The remodeling phase (collagen deposition occurs and the extracellular matrix is rebuilt)
        • (1)
      • Laser Therapy is believed to enhance the production of new blood vessels (both neovascularization and angiogenesis) and collagen synthesis (1)
    • Inflammation can be caused by many things, but has been proven to be greatly alleviated through Laser Therapy.
    • Vasodilation:
      • Laser Therapy causes vasodilation by triggering the relaxation of smooth muscle.
    • Oxygen
      • Vasodilation then in turn increases the availability of oxygen to cells, allowing for an increase in immune cells to be brought to the treated area.
    • STROKES:
      • “Laser Therapy has been used to mitigate damage after strokes (in both animals and humans), after traumatic brain injury and after spinal cord injury.” (1)
    • Laser Therapy has been shown to increase nerve regeneration (2).



    • Laser Therapy has a wide range of effects at the level of molecules, cells and tissues. (2) Laser Therapy has been found to benefit essentially all types of tissues and organs of the body (1). “Laser Therapy can also stimulate healing of deeper structures such as nerves, tendons, cartilage, bones, and even internal organs. Laser Therapy can reduce pain, inflammation and swelling caused by injuries, degenerative diseases or autoimmune diseases.” (1)
    • Laser Therapy has been FDA cleared for efficacy (FDA 510(k) number K060305)) for the purpose of hair regrowth since January of 2007 (3). This took place due to a study on Hairmax Lasercomb which showed statistical significant improvement in a randomized, double-blind, sham device-controlled, multicenter trial in 110 men with androgenetic alopecia (1).
      • Laser Therapy has seen success with hair regrowth in balding individuals, as Laser Therapy stimulates more hair follicles to move from telogen phase (rest phase) into anagen phase (growth phase) (1).
  • TEETH:
      • Only a small amount of studies have so far been done, but research is looks positive that Laser Therapy stimulates the regeneration of cells in the teeth (4).
      • Using Laser Therapy both before and/or after exercise has been shown to increase performance in athletes (5). Laser Therapy can increase muscle mass gained after training and also decrease soreness (5).
      • When low power lasers are focused on acupuncture points, the same stimulation seen in traditional needle acupuncture can be seen. Higher doses of Laser Therapy can also be used to deactivate trigger points. (1) 
    • Intravenous and intravascular blood irradiation has only recently begun to be studied, and has not yet been seen in randomized controlled trials. However, it is theorized that Laser Therapy normalizes all types of blood lipids, render platelets less likely to aggregate (meaning clotting is less likely), and activate the immune system (through dendritic cells, macrophages and lymphocytes). (1)

Things To Note About Treatment:

  • A common notion is that “more is better” more horsepower on the car means I go faster with more power! Therefore, if Laser Therapy is so good for me, I want the most high powered laser, and a lot of it! WRONG
  • More can be worse:
    • While no adverse effects have been documented while using Laser Therapy properly (parameters set by World Association of Laser Therapy/WALT), exceeding the recommended exposure to Laser Therapy can cause what is referred to as a “healing crisis.” Understand that this is not actually something to fear, but is more simply the body’s way of healing through eliminating toxins. Laser Therapy allows the cells to function more efficiently, meaning toxins are excreted from the cells. These toxins then become loose in the bloodstream and must be flushed out. Until the toxins are flushed out, they have the potential to cause a slight increase in pain; this is simply a chemical effect of the dying off of the toxins. As the toxins are eliminated (through natural functions like elimination, sweat, breathing, etc.), pain decreases.
      • This process can be painful and often resembles flu like symptoms. The most common symptom of a healing crisis is a general muscle ache, but in very rare occasions more severe flu like symptoms can occur, such as nausea, headaches, soreness, and in extremely rare occasions-vomiting. Symptoms if they occur should last a day or two, and in extremely rare cases up to a week. Having a healing crisis is NOT a necessary part of treatment-the purpose of Laser Therapy is to DEcrease pain, so if you experience this, alter treatment immediately. “No pain, no gain” does NOT apply with Laser Therapy.
        • Side-note, a “healing crisis” is NOT specific to Laser Therapy, but can happen during any form of detox (LEARN MORE HERE)
        • If a healing crisis is experienced, the following have the potential to expedite flushing out the toxins to alleviate uncomfortable symptoms:
          • Sleep, lots of water, and consuming fermented items rich in electrolytes and enzymes are recommended. Examples include fermented whey, coconut water, kefir, apple cider vinegar, and kombucha. Vitamin C in doses of over 3000 mg/day are also helpful during this process as Vitamin C is able to bind to toxins and expedite elimination from the body. Eating healthy, focusing on fruits and vegetables, is also helpful at this time. Excessive sugar will be counterproductive as it will only add to the toxins in the body.
  • Too little can result in no observable results
    • Laser Therapy has often been criticized for not being an effective modality due to many studies and individuals conducting treatment with less than adequate duration of treatment. It is crucial to saturate the body at the beginning of treatment in order to see optimal results. This is discussed further below under TREATMENT.
      • The time and the parameters are both crucial to see adequate results (2)
  • Low Powered is BETTER (to a point)
    • Not only do higher powered lasers run a higher risk of causing a healing crisis, but LOWER levels of light have been shown to have a BETTER effect on stimulating and repairing tissues than higher levels (2). Obviously this is only true to a certain extent, as can be understood by attempting to heal carpal tunnel with a power point laser pointer.

What to do to maximize treatment:

  • Do NOT ice.
    • At a minimum, do not ice for 24 hours before and 48 hours after each Laser Therapy treatment. However, for optimal results it is best to not ice the area being treated for the entire duration of the protocol. Applying ice slows down the body’s absorption of the Laser Therapy energy.
  • Shower FIRST
    • It is always best to shower BEFORE treatment. After treatment, it is suggested to wait 4 hours before showering or going swimming. This is because the energy from Laser Therapy is initially being absorbed by the skin, and during any water activities some of the cells that absorbed the Laser Therapy energy will wash off. If a shower is required in less than 4 hours following treatment, it should not hinder healing much, but for optimal results please follow these guidelines.
  • Don’t physically overexert
    • Laser Therapy does not make you superman! People often start feeling positive results near the beginning. This can be very exciting and can result in the desire for more physical exertion than was previously possible. It is advised to maintain the same level of activity one is used to in order to 1) not put excess strain on the body while it is healing and 2) minimize the risk of further injury before a full recovery is completed. Also, keep in mind that some people do experience a fluctuation in pain levels during treatment, but minimizing excess physical exertion during the course of treatment will help minimize potential increases in pain during the course of treatment as well.
  • Water
    • Drinking plenty of fluids (typical female should drink a minimum of 75oz, males 100oz, plus more for both with any physical activity according to the MayoClinic) will help to flush out toxins released from the cell walls of the body during Laser Therapy treatment. This will help to minimize potential fluctuations in pain levels during treatment, as well as to further support the body’s healing.
  • Sleep
    • The body heals most when sleeping, so allowing the body to get enough sleep will help maximize healing as well. Because Laser Therapy is essentially putting the body in a healing mode, it is common for patients to claim that they feel more sleepy and achieve deeper sleep during the course of Laser Therapy treatments than they would otherwise. This is entirely normal and a healthy sign that the body is healing internally.


What to expect from Treatment

What is Going On In The Body?
(in layman’s terms and from possible observation)

  • What all of the above translates to for patients recieving Laser Therapy treatment can be any or all of the following:

Pain relief, increased energy, reduction in symptoms from various conditions and disorders, better circulation, decreased external and internal scar tissue, and more

  • If it is a buildup of scar tissue that is causing issues prior to treatment, the body is capable of actually naturally dissolving the scar tissue through the energy received from Laser Therapy.
  • If pain is caused from nerve damage, the body is capable of actually regenerating and rejuvenating the nerve cells through energy received from Laser Therapy. Once the myelin sheath (coating around the nerve head) has been repaired, or once inflammation pressing onto the nerve has been relieved, pain will decrease.
  • If a muscle or tendon is strained or torn, as long as it is not torn completely, the energy received through Laser Therapy can repair the strain or tear.
    • Note-if something is torn entirely, Laser Therapy will NOT be capable of reattaching it, at least not necessarily in the correct location. This is because there is no signal in the body to attach A to B, so this is a circumstance where surgery is required to ensure proper placement of reattachment.
  • Since Laser Therapy is essentially assisting the body to heal itself, positive side effects can include but are not limited to: boosted immune system, reduced external scaring, improved skin clarity and more.
    • The most common positive side effect is improved quality of sleep. The body heals while sleeping, so while receiving laser therapy treatment, the body gets the signal that it is time to heal. Patients often feel tired following a session of laser therapy and claim to sleep much better while completing their laser therapy protocols.
      • Allowing your body to sleep when you feel it needs to will help the saturation of energy received from Laser Therapy. This can be understood by realizing that the more active you are, the more energy is required of your body, but during sleep, you allow your body to maximize healing.
      • There are also lasers on the market for the purpose of assisting with sleep, as well as specific protocols to assist further with sleep


What Treatment Feels Like

**This section is based on personal and firsthand experience, so no sources are cited for the following. Results can be verified by inquiring at any quality Laser Therapy Clinic**

  • PAIN?
    • No Harm:
      • By now hopefully it is clearly understood that Laser Therapy is ENTIRELY NON-INVASIVE and when used properly does NOT induce any additional harm to the body. Pain is extremely rare to experience during treatment, and if you find yourself in this small percentage, stop treatment immediately and reassess the protocol being used. No harm is being caused, but treatment is NOT intended to ever be painful and pain is NEVER necessary to achieve results.
    • Fluctuation in Pain:
      • Now while pain is never to be expected when receiving Laser Therapy treatment, do not be alarmed if at some point towards the beginning of treatment that pain levels INCREASE (this is not limited to the beginning of treatment, but is more common than towards the end). Drinking water, sleeping, and lowering Laser Therapy treatment will help alleviate this pain, as under this circumstance the pain is attributed to a “healing crisis” (discussed above). Remember that this is not causing the body any harm, but is simply an excessive release of toxins which can cause in flu-like symptoms. Once these toxins are flushed out, pain cycles go down.
      • Peak pain levels will continue to decrease throughout treatment, but speak up if pain levels are ever at a level not able to be tolerated as pain (healing crisis) is NOT required to achieve results.
    • No Laser Therapy treatment is ever “cold” in temperature
    • Class I and II
      • Any lasers classified as Class I or II do NOT generate heat, meaning they do not generate any alteration in temperature as the experience is received by the patient
    • Class III
      • Class III lasers can generate some warmth, this level of heat should never be very intense
    • Class IV
      • Class IV lasers always generate heat. While the heat generated is always fairly significant as all lasers in this classification are technically a burn hazard (SEE CLASSIFICATIONS), anyone who has had any training should understand the correct speed at which to move the laser to ensure the level of warmth felt by the patient is of a very soothing and therapeutic temperature. This additional element of treatment should improve relaxation and enjoyment, no pain or burning sensation should be felt.
        • Because of the level of heat these lasers are capable of emitting, they are required by law to only be in a medical facility.
    • Whether or not the laser moves around is dependent on what type of laser it is. Any laser with a heat element will NEED to move around to ensure the patients optimal comfort. This can both be done by a practitioner and also by a robot.
    • Class I and II lasers can be held in one spot for a certain duration before moving to another spot, as they generate no heat and will not burn. These lasers will still occasionally be moved around the body, depending on the setting and purpose for treatment.
    • The majority of the time during treatment, patients claim to feel nothing at all (except warmth depending on which laser is being used), however, there are a surprising number who experience various sensations related to healing during or immediately following treatment.
      • These sensations can include tingling or throbbing in various areas not necessarily exactly where treatment is being administered. These sensations are more common when nerve damage or an acute injury is being treated, though are not limited to their presence.
    • As discussed in the section above, it is completely normal to feel a heightened desire to sleep. Laser Therapy essentially puts your body in a healing mode and it is when we sleep that the body heals best.  


How Many Treatments are Needed?

*****The answer to this question is entirely dependent on the person, condition, type of laser, and protocol being used.*****

The following are GENERALITIES. Also note, for the following, a “treatment” consists of one roughly 30 minute session, unless otherwise state.

  • Specifics for Treatment:
      • IN CLINICS:
        • Treatments vary widely depending on many variables, including what type of clinic one is receiving treatment. For example, in a typical Laser Therapy treatment, one will generally find a Class III or Class IV laser. The average session for treatment with these lasers is typically around 30 minutes. This is generally sufficient for 1 large body part or 2 smaller ones (i.e. the back would be a large example, 2 knees would be an example of 2 smaller body parts, or one knee and one elbow, etc.).
          • Some Laser Therapy clinics utilize TWO lasers at the same time. For example, a Class IV laser would be moved around with one hand, while a Class II with NO heat would be held in various places by the other hand. This tactic allows for maximum treatment to be delivered in the shortest time per session, lessening the time commitment for both the clinic and patient.
        • Another example of session time differing is in the case of a chiropractor. Now do note that some chiropractors may also do full Laser Therapy sessions for the purpose of alleviating chronic pain (see frequency below for clarity of this), a duration as short as even a few minutes can be enough to stimulate a short term decrease in inflammation, allowing for improved manipulation of the body for chiropractic purposes.
        • This varies greatly depending on device and condition, but can range anywhere from 10 minutes to 90 minutes for a single condition. More complicated conditions, such as any autoimmune disorders, will require more comprehensive treatment.
      • IN CLINICS:
        • As discussed multiple times, it is crucial that adequate saturation of the body takes place at the beginning of treatment. Typical quality Laser Therapy clinics will schedule a patient’s first 1/3-1/2 of their recommended treatments for an average of 3 times per week. Then this will taper off to an average of 2x per week, then 1x per week. Then it is optimal that treatment is paused for anywhere from 1-6 weeks to evaluate improvement. During this pause, assuming adequate saturation of energy was indeed delivered to the body through Laser Therapy treatments, healing is still taking place. This pause assumes that enough saturation has taken place for the time being and allows it to be optimally absorbed by the body, as well as ensures the patient is not wasting time and money on receiving treatment while being fully saturated. After this pause treatment may or may not continue at any variety of frequency depending on how the patient is responding.
        • Home devices assumedly are delivering a lower dose of energy, meaning frequency will be higher. Treatment with a home device usually consists of daily treatment, sometimes 2 or 3 times daily. Again, this is extremely dependent on the condition being treated.


  • Acute injuries
    • Obviously this varies widely dependent on the severity of the injury. A sliced finger that refuses to close for a few days, one 5-10 minute treatment might be enough for it to close for good, while a more severe injury will take in the range of weeks to months to heal, depending on severity.
    • Decrease in pain and swelling will be the first noticeable improvements. A noticeable difference in both is possible in as little as one treatment with an acute injury, though it is always best to have no expectations when receiving treatment.
    • Keep in mind that throbbing and tingling are more common in acute injuries than with chronic pain. If this is experienced, it simply indicates very rapid healing.
  • Chronic Pain
    • Chronic pain can take roughly a few weeks to a month to feel significant improvement for most conditions. However, specifically with back pain, some practitioners warn patients to not expect to see improvement for the first 6 weeks. Chronic pain should expect very significant improvement within 2-3 months of treatment, with an estimation of 15-25 treatments. Continued maintenance treatments vary greatly on the individual.
    • There are occasionally individuals who have experienced pain for decades who do claim to feel temporary improvement after one Laser Therapy treatment for the following 24-48 hours, but this is not the majority so this is not to be expected.
  • Autoimmune
    • Any autoimmune disorder indicates a very complex issue with the body, meaning a lot needs to happen internally before symptoms are alleviated. For any autoimmune disorder, do not expect to see potentially any improvement for the first 2 months, and expect to treat for a few months following to ensure lasting improvement. Estimate a minimum of 20 treatments, often times in the range of 30 treatments in a Laser Therapy clinic over the course of a few months for an autoimmune disorder. For a home device, expect to treat daily for a few months until improvement is noticeable, and then use as directed.
    • Obviously there are always exceptions who experience results sooner than described, but it is best to expect to be in the majority unless pleasantly surprised otherwise.
    • Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis and Fibromyalgia are three examples of conditions that always will take more treatment than any other condition.



  • FDA
    • Laser Therapy has been FDA cleared for pain relief, reducing inflammation and increasing blood flow since 2003. Clearance took place following a study done by General Motors on Carpal Tunnel which proved to show statistically significant results. In this study, 72% of those who received Laser Therapy were able to return to work, versus 41% who received the placebo. The study showed that physical therapy alone did improve grip strength, however significantly more subjects had improved grip strength and overall improvement when Laser Therapy was added to their treatment. (7) (16)
  • Insurance
    • Unfortunately at this time no public insurance company pays for Laser Therapy treatment, with the ONE exception of psoriasis. If you have psoriasis, call your insurance company to see if it is covered.
  • PIP
    • Occasionally personal injury cases have been known to cover Laser Therapy. If you have been in a car accident, call to see if you can qualify for coverage of Laser Therapy treatments.



There are no significant adverse effects with Laser Therapy (SEE STUDIES). Certain Class IV lasers have a heat element to them and can cause mild to moderate burning of the skin if not used properly. Good practice is to not look at any wavelengths of infrared or near-infrared laser. For more specific risks of improper use, see CLASSIFICATIONS.


Reasons why Laser Therapy might NOT work

  • There are only a few select circumstances under which it is known that Laser Therapy does NOT work:
    • 1) Birth Defect
      • Laser Therapy essentially gives your body the energy to do everything it is genetically coded to do naturally. A birth defect is a genetic hiccup, where it is in the DNA for the defect to be there. Laser Therapy does not change your DNA.
    • 2) Diabetes
      • For any diabetic whose A1C levels are 7 or above, it is almost guaranteed that Laser Therapy will either not work at all, or results will be extremely prolonged. It is advisable to have A1C levels below 6 when receiving treatment in a clinic to minimize frustration over wasted time and money.
      • The reason why is because when blood sugar levels are too high, it is toxic to the body. Laser Therapy essentially gives your body the energy it needs to heal itself, but the body can’t be told, “Hey, you know… My knees are really hurting right now, I know my bloodstream is really toxic but, if you could just leave that alone for a bit and treat my knees instead, that’d be really great… Thanks Laser.” –It doesn’t work like that! The body will use the energy from Laser Therapy to heal what IT KNOWS needs that energy most. High levels of diabetes are so debilitating because the sugar is actually eating away parts of the body, so the energy from Laser Therapy will go towards countering that, versus whatever else it was intended for. When sugar levels are too high, they are corroding faster than the energy from Laser Therapy can heal.
      • Once blood sugar levels are under control however, Laser Therapy has been shown to be very helpful in alleviating symptoms caused by diabetes, such as Diabetic Neuropathy (SEE STUDIES). 
    • 3) Statins
      • Statins are an umbrella categorization of medications often used to lower cholesterol. However, there are countless sources that advise against statins for a variety of reasons. Citation of this statement is not provided for various reasons. Admin encourages readers to do their own research and ask to ask respective doctors if statins are actually necessary for the individual. Often times medications of any kind can be over prescribed-talk to your doctor for more details.
        • For anyone taking 40mg of statins or more should either understand that improvements will be limited and will take exponentially longer, or should wait until dosage can be reduced with aid of the prescribing doctor.
        • The reason why is because statins are very toxic to the body, so, just like with a diabetic with a high A1C, the energy from Laser Therapy will go towards countering the toxicity of the statins in the body instead of alleviating intended conditions. Just like with the high blood sugar levels, the statins are more toxic than the lasers are healing.
    • 4) Diet coke
      • No, there has not been an official study done on this to the knowledge of the admin, however, certain clinics have found that anyone drinking 6 or more diet cokes per day do not experience expected results.
        • The reason for this is the same as with high blood sugar levels and high statin doses-too much diet coke creates too much toxicity in the body, corroding the body faster than the lasers can heal it.
        • For optimal results for Laser Therapy treatment, a healthy lifestyle consisting of quality whole foods, minimal sugar and reasonable exercise is suggested. These are NOT required to experience results, but getting down to as few sodas per day is advised.
    • 5) Low ATP
      • ATP production is key with Laser Therapy, and the level of ATP is inversely correlated to the duration of which it will take to feel improvement from Laser Therapy treatments. In other words, the lower ATP levels are, the more Laser Therapy treatments would be required. Low ATP can be caused by a variety of reasons. To understand more about the effect role of ATP and the ripple effect caused by low ATP levels, click HERE. Low ATP levels can occur for various reasons in a variety of conditions including hemolyitic anemia (11), Fibromyalgia (13), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) (14), and in cancer (15) (12). To understand the connections of ATP on a more technical level, click HERE
      • Here is a possible* way to boost ATP levels naturally. *Note, this is a source found by the Admin for the individual to research and make their own decisions on. The Admin has no correlation with this site and has no personal knowledge of the effectiveness of the listed suggestions. 
      • It has also been suggested that those allergic to Sulfa also experience very low ATP levels. Research behind this has not been found in academic journals at this time, if you know of sources that support this, please contact the Admin. This claim is based on discussion with a quality Laser Therapy Clinic who found a consistent correlation in their patients. To raise ATP levels and treat a Sulfa allergy, this clinic used Laser Energetic Detox.
      • To learn more about Laser Energetic Detox, click HEREHERE or HERE.
      • To learn more about Sulfa, click HERE. In short, it has been used as an antibacterial drug since the 1930’s, but is toxic to the body when it builds up. Possible signs of a Sulfa allergy include skin reactions (rashes, hives, increased light sensitivity, etc.), liver or kidney issues, poor lung functioning, certain blood reactions, and/or patients do not seem to receive expected results from practically any healing modality. 

Clinic Treatment vs Home Devices

There are Pros and Cons to both receiving treatment in a Laser Therapy Clinic as well as obtaining a Home Device. Understand that most devices available for purchase for home use are NOT the same as the majority of devices used in Laser Therapy Clinics (there is only one exception known to the Admin-see COMRA THERAPY below), though “better” or “worse” is subjective. Use this list to determine what is right for you:

    • PROS:
      • It is always easier to have someone who is trained in Laser Therapy treatment and specifically with the device actually being utilized in therapy for various reasons:
        • 1) The patient does not have to do the thinking and figuring out of where the best place is for application
        • 2) No training necessary for the patient
        • 3) Minimizes misuse (SEE CLASSIFICATIONS for clarity)
        • 4) There are certain places that are not possible to reach and treat with Laser Therapy on your own body
    • CONS:
      • Not all clinics are created equal:
        • 1) Not all clinics actually truly know what they are doing to achieve quality results
        • 2) Not all claims are accurate
        • 3) Not all clinics have the patients best interest as a priority, but instead are driven by money
          • NOTE*** These are possible Cons. These Cons are NOT true for every Laser Therapy Clinic*** This site is to encourage people think for themselves to ensure their best interest is truly a priority. See below for a check list to ensure best treatment is received.


to improve probability of receiving the PROS on this list WITHOUT the Cons:

    • 1) Research a clinic BEFORE having treatment
      • Check reviews, and really read from an inquisitive platform to assess that reviews listed are indeed by real patients
      • Most quality Laser Therapy Clinics offer FREE consultations. Anyone charging more than $25 for you to simply come in and ask questions most likely has money as a higher priority than your well-being.
      • Any Laser Therapy Clinic who has your best interest as a priority wants to help. Obviously anyone can get pestered when pushed with too many questions coming from an interrogative platform, but a quality clinic will want to at the very least point you in the right direction if they can’t answer everything personally.
    • 3) Know the marketplace
      • The price for individual sessions of Laser Therapy varies greatly. Prices can be as low as $35/session all the way up to $250/session, and everywhere in between (sessions as used here references a 30 minute duration*). Just because one clinic is priced higher does not mean they are necessarily better, just like a lower priced clinic isn’t necessary worse.
      • Some sessions also come with other bonuses in addition to Laser Therapy (not common at all, but do exist).
      • Because Laser Therapy is growing so fast in popularity, lots of individuals and clinics are using Laser Therapy as an add-on. Chiropractors are the most common field that do this. With any clinic that has Laser Therapy, understand that it is NOT covered by insurance, so if a clinic is not charging you and claiming to bill it to insurance, they are committing fraud. (Psoriasis is the ONLY condition currently covered by some insurance companies to be treated with Laser Therapy)
    • 4) Know how it works
      • Remember, MULTIPLE sessions are necessary to receive optimal results, and these must be done in a short time span. “Short time span” usually consists of 2-4 times per week for a few weeks in a row. After that, treatments can be spaced out more, though this is a general statement which is ENTIRELY dependent on condition and type of laser being used.
      • Treatment time also is generally a minimum of roughly 20 minutes and no longer than 60 in a clinic. This is entirely dependent on type of laser being used, and also how many conditions are being treated at one time. For one condition, typically treatment time is 20-30 minutes.
        • Noted exceptions are the fingers and toes require less than this stated amount of time per session, and severe auto-immune diseases generally need slightly more.
      • WARNING: If at the beginning of Laser Therapy treatment any clinic says for example that 15 minutes of treatment once a week or every other week, or “whenever your appointment happens to be”, will suffice, chances are very high that they are NOT very knowledgeable about Laser Therapy. If you are not receiving a high saturation of therapy in the beginning of treatment, there is a very high chance you are wasting your time and money.
    • PROS:
      • Generally significantly cheaper if treating complex or multiple conditions
      • You can use the device for any condition you choose
      • You can use the device on anyone you choose
      • You can treat whenever you choose
      • You can treat in any location you’d like, including your own home
      • No awkwardness for any indecent exposure necessary for treatment of certain conditions
    • CONS:
      • Correct application is your responsibility
      • If treating hard to reach areas are necessary, home treatment will require help. If you live alone, this must be arranged.
      • Not all home devices are created equal
        • Some home devices are not proven to be very effective
        • Some home devices are shaped in a certain way which prevents them from being applied to all areas that would otherwise be helpful (See COMMONLY USED LASERS for examples)

to improve probability of receiving the PROS on this list WITHOUT the Cons:

    • 1) Do the research!
      • It is never recommended to buy something simply because a very hyped up infomercial was viewed
      • Research the specific product, review the claims they make, and compare to the information on this website
      • There are very quality home device units for the $2,000 range. If you are considering purchasing anything for considerably more than that, it may be in your best interest to consider other options (specific devices discussed under LASER TYPES for further reference).
    • 2) Ask questions
      • Anyone who has your best interest as a priority wants to make a serious effort towards you receiving a quality experience with their product
    • 3) Think for yourself
      • If you feel compelled to purchase a device specifically designed for the knee, understand that it is meant and shaped for the KNEE, that the shape does not make it conducive to also treat your back, neck and shoulder pain. If your knee pain is the only thing that you wish to use the device for, great, this portion of the checklist may be checked off positively for you. However, if you have other ailments, consider purchasing a device with a bit more location flexibility.
    • 4) Ask yourself-will I use this?
      • One way to avoid buyer’s remorse is to know yourself and to make a commitment. If you purchase a device meant to elevate your health, if it sits on your shelf and is never used, it clearly is not going to help you. However, if you make a commitment to yourself that you WILL use the device to take health into your own hands, fantastic. Stick to that!


Other Modalities Which Increase Effectiveness of Laser Therapy 

Something more to know is that not only is LASER not the only modality that has proven effective for health, but that often times when LASER is used in combination with other modalities it can produce a synergistic effect.

  • Synergy is defined as: “The interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.

The best example of a device known to the Admin that utilizes a synergistic platform of multiple modalities is a combination referred to as coMra-Therapy. CoMra-Therapy used near-infrared, magnets, LED and ultra-sound (ultra-sound can be turned on or off). The devices utilizing this synergistic technology are all portable, and there is currently a PRO model for only those in a health profession, and also a base model available for purchase and use by anyone. Both come with a very detailed book explaining how to use the device, complete with protocols of over 200 conditions. This technology and these devices are explained below:

CoMra Therapy

(**More citations coming soon for this section**)

CoMra Therapy is a technology patented by Radiant Life Technologies. It utilizes 4 modalities: LED, Infrared Laser, Magnets and Ultrasound.

  • Radiant Life Technologies (RLT)
    • Like minded individuals came together in 1995 with the intention of helping people heal themselves. RLT was founded in July of 2009 and is now an international business. (8)
    • The specifics of coMra Therapy were created by Théun Mares (1952-2011). He lived his life with the belief that his ultimate purpose of being was to help people help themselves. (9)
  • Why “coMra”?
    • “Co” in coMra stands for “Coherent”
      • Coherent vs Incoherent Light
        • Incoherent Light:
          • Most visible light is incoherent, meaning that photons (light particles) randomly spread out as soon as they are emitted from a light source. Sunlight is an example of this, as it spreads everywhere it can.  
        • Coherent Light
          • Coherent light means the light always has a straight trajectory, that the light never diffuses over a distance. A visual for this is a laser pointer-the light remains the same size as when it is pointed a distance of 2 inches or across the room.
        • What this means:
          • Coherent light penetrates deeper into the body making coherent lasers ideal for deep penetrating therapy.
          • LED are always incoherent, meaning they diffuse quickly, making them suitable for surface therapy.
          • A healthy body operates with coherent energy, however, the human body is so evolved that it is ecological, in a continual state of communication and energy exchange with the environment. This purports that the human body is negentropic, (reduces entropy), allowing it the ability to transform incoherent light into coherent light as needed.
            • An example of this is that the sun, an important energy source for the body, is incoherent light which the body converts into coherent light energy to use efficiently.
          • How this relates to coMra-Therapy:
            • The four modalities in coMra-Therapy are stimulated coherently, making it the most efficient delivery of energy to the body, able to treat as superficial or as deep on the body as is needed. This efficiency in delivery is what allows the energy emitted in coMra-Therapy to be so low level there are no risks (classified as IIA SEE CLASSIFICATIONS), yet is still maximally effective.
          • The “M” and “ra” stand for there being multiple radiances, meaning multiple modalities. Each modality will be described below.
  • What is the device?
    • The technology of CoMra Therapy is delivered through a Delta Laser. This device is classified as a Class IIA laser, meaning there are essentially zero risks (SEE CLASSIFICATIONS) and no precautions are required to be taken in order to use this device. (10)
  • What are the 4 modalities?
    • 1) Near-Infrared Laser Light
      • This modality has been explained in depth. For more specifics, see WHAT IS LASER, APPLICATIONS, and the top of this page.
      • As it pertains specifically to coMra, RLT offers a base model which operates at 980nm, as well as a PRO model for only health practitioners which operates at 905nm. Both have an optical power of 10mW (10).
        • PRO Model: 905nm
          • As understood from the WHAT IS LASER page, the lower the nm, the stronger the frequency (though this is not the only factor in “power” as discussed on multiple pages on this site). As is explained by RLT, at the frequency of 905nm, the energy delivered from the device targets the cell wall, making this a more intense delivery of energy to the cell.
            • This can result in faster healing than the base model, however it also makes the potential for a “healing crisis” more likely (explained above). To reiterate, no harm is being caused, but there can be an increase in pain, which is not ideal and not recommended for anyone outside of the health field with adequate understanding of the body.
        • BASE Model: 980nm
          • This is the frequency of the base model, available for purchase by any individual. (If interested in purchasing this device, CLICK HERE).
          • As explained by RLT, at this frequency, the water molecule of the cell is targeted, resulting in a more gradual delivery of energy as compared to the 905.
          • At this frequency, overuse potentiating a healing crisis is extremely rare, and only reportedly experienced by very few extremely sensitive individuals (anyone who experiences a healing crisis from proper use of this device is general an individual who experiences much sensitivity and difficulty with all other modalities as well. If you know yourself to be of this level of sensitivity, customized protocols are recommended to receive an optimal experience).
    • 2) LED
      • A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source. Introduced as a practical electronic component in 1962 early LEDs emitted low-intensity red light, but modern versions are available across the visible, ultraviolet and infrared wavelengths, with very high brightness.” (1)
      • It is understood that skin exposed to LED light rejuvenates 150-200% faster than skin without. Various LED colors are very commonly used by aestheticians during facials.
      • Every color is a different frequency (SEE WHAT IS LASER) with different healing properties. CoMra Therapy utilizes the following LED:
        • Yellow/Green LED
          • 570 nm operating at 240 mcd (mcd stands for “millicandela” and is the measurement of the intensity of light produced)
          • This color range targets uneven skin tones and reduces redness. These colors also greatly decrease inflammation by encouraging circulation and boosting the skin’s natural immune system. These colors are ideal to help with skin pigmentation, varicose veins and broken capillaries.
        • Red Amber LED
          • 650 nm operating at 300 mcd
          • This color range softens wrinkles, improves facial skin firmness, reduces signs of ageing and reverses the loss of skin firmness and tone. The fibroblast cells are stimulated to enhance collagen, improve elasticity, decrease scar tissue and reduce inflammation. These colors are ideal for wrinkles, inflammation, scars, and boosting collagen production.
        • Indigo Violet LED
          • 420nm operating at 240mcd 
          • This color range has the ability to kill the acne bacteria in the pores. These colors are most ideal for improving impure skin, blemishes, acne and enlarged pores.
      • LED sequencing:
        • In coMra-Therapy, the three sets of LEDs (colors discussed above) are modulated in one of two specific sequences in an on/off pattern.
          • 1) The first pattern is a regenerative message, consisting of a Red-Indigo Violet – Yellow/Green sequence. This pattern also corresponds to the natural progression in the wound healing process:
            • Inflammation (red) – Cell Proliferation (Indigo Violet) – Wound Remodeling (Yellow/Green).
          • 2) The second pattern is a rejuvenating message and follows a sequence of Red – Yellow/Green – Indigo Violet. This pattern is responsible for enhancing existing structures, specifically cells, within the body. This pattern is especially beneficial in cosmetology.
    • 3) Magnetotherapy (Magnets)
      • Modern day clinical evidence has confirmed the efficacy of magnetotherapy as beneficial in bone unification, minimizing edema in soft tissue, and in reducing pain relief.
      • Studies combining magnets and infrared, Magneto-Infrared-Laser Therapy (MIL-Therapy) were first conducted in the late 1970’s in Russia.
        • The combination of these low level radiances showed synergistic healing effects that exceeded those of the individual radiances.
        • Russia is the leading country of MIL-Therapy due to these studies.
        • MIL-Therapy devices have been used in clinical practices since the 1990’s.
      • Recent isotope discoveries have shown that the key process of energy metabolism (ATP synthesis) can be stimulated by a magnetic field.
      • Magnets have been shown to strongly enhance the effects of the laser, allowing for efficient delivery of a low dose of laser therapy.
      • The strength of the magnets in coMra-Therapy is 30 mT (“milliTesla”)
    • 4) Ultrasound
      • Ultrasound is an acoustic pressure wave which passes through tissue as a train of compression and expansion zones, creating vibration.
      • Therapeutic usage of ultrasound has existed since 1927.
      • Clinical applications of ultrasound consist of but are not limited to accelerating bone repair and wound healing.
      • Ultrasound stimulates metabolism in the body through increasing molecular transport and temperature. This acts as a catalyst for the process of protein synthesis, which is crucial for restoring damaged tissues.
      • It has been suggested that ultrasound accelerates enzymatic activity.
      • Ultrasound increases the speed of delivery of substrates to an enzyme’s active site.
      • Ultrasound has been shown to be very effective in expediting blood clot dissolution, increasing the speed of this process 2 to 5.5 times the normal rate.
      • Ultrasound increases the rate of biochemical reactions.
      • Ultrasound in coMra-Therapy:
        • Used at a frequency of 40kHz, meaning it has efficient penetration abilities and does not cause excessive heating. The emitters are placed at a 9mm distance from the skin on the medical head to provide a gentle stimulation of enzymatic metabolism.
        • On the aesthetic head the emitters are placed at skin level for additional stimulation on a superficial level.


  • When used coherently together, these modalities complement each other and work in synergy.
  • This efficiency in energy delivery allows for a lower dosage of energy and shorter duration of treatment to be necessary for maximum results.
  • Experiments conducted with MIL-Therapy have been shown that an on/off modulation of the laser diode enables a maximum effect to be achieved in terms of the effective penetration or depth.
  • Laser settings:
    • The coMra-Therapy device has 4 setting options:
      • 1) 5Hz setting allows coMra-Therapy to achieve maximum penetration, reaching inner organs and bones.
      • 2) 50Hz allows for moderate penetration, ideal for subcutaneous layers of tissue and superficial muscles.
      • 3) 1000Hz penetrates the epidermis and dermis only (skin level).
      • 4) V stands for Variable. This setting rotates through each of the other three settings.
  • Multiple Convenient Attachment Options:
    • There are 4 different heads of this laser available at this time:
      • 1) The Medical Head is used for all health conditions, painful and non. This is the laser head used in clinics. This attachment focuses on the regeneration of cells.
      • 2) The Aesthetic Head is constructed to focus on superficial healing, such as scarring, skin pigmentation, acne, wrinkles, etc. This attachment focuses on the rejuvenation of the cells, making its application also especially convenient to expedite muscle recovery after heavy weight training.
      • 3) The Meridian Head is used primarily for hair regrowth, but is also required for certain other protocols, such as the protocol to quit smoking.
      • 4) The Probe can be used in alignment with the practice of Acupuncture as it has a pointed tip on the end, and can also be inserted into any orifice in the body for a more internal treatment
    • All attachments are available in frequencies of 905nm and 980 nm, except the Meridian which only comes in a 980nm.

    • There is a video testimonial of a woman who was diagnosed with Stage 5 Kidney Failure-End Stage. She was told she was “going to die soon.” Due to her religious affiliation she could not do dialysis, so Laser Therapy is the only modality she used. 2 years later she informed the clinic she initially received treatment at that her doctor had told her she was only a few points from being back to Stage 4. She purchased 2 coMra-Therapy devices to expedite the duration of her daily protocol (due to the severity of her condition, she had received a custom protocol totaling over an hour of treatment twice per day). See her testimonial HERE.
  • Prevention
    • Wellness
      • RLT has developed numerous wellness protocols to boost overall vitality and immune health.
      • There are also protocols specifically for those who are very physically active.
